Reports suggest that Val d’Isere and Tignes have already enjoyed more snow this month than in any year since 1981, with more records set to be broken if the snow continues.”
“We haven’t seen continuous snowfall like this for a decade,” says Ski editor Amy Neville-Eliot.
“The snow level at Bochard, part of the Grands Montets domaine, is reported to be 325cm. And in resorts such as Val d’Isere the snow is banked over 1.5 metres deep at the side of the streets.
“Some chalets in Verbier were evacuated on Friday and in Courchevel the World Cup Ski Racing was postponed the following day due to too much snow.”
